Olympic history
Summer Games

Tunisia first participated at the Olympic Games in 1960, and has sent athletes to compete in every Summer Olympic Games since then, except when they participated in the American-led boycott of the 1980 Summer Olympics. Tunisia has never participated in the Winter Olympic Games.

Tunisian athletes have won a total of ten medals, four by the great long-distance runner Mohammed Gammoudi in men's athletics, three by long-distance swimmer Oussama Mellouli in men's swimming, two in men's boxing and one in women's athletics.

The National Olympic Committee for Tunisia was created in 1957.
